Red-Orange Flower Vines Matelasse Kimono Silk Pieces 13" x 14" # 4025
Deep poppy-red-orange tones blending from darker to lighter in tendrils of vines, blossoms and leaves. This is a complex 'fukureori' technique which creates crinkles and texture in layers of jacquard; it's a Japanese type of matelasse. The base silk also has areas of paler oranges and olives blended with the deeper tones. Lots of texture and light-play in this glowing, but not shiny, vintage kimono silk. The back is much smoother and less crinkled. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition. Japan.
